The Ram 1500 pickup has been a hit with critics and consumers alike, and it’s earned even more praise this month from Esquire magazine. Esquire announced in a December 3 press release that the Ram 1500 EcoDiesel was its Truck of the Year, praising it for its towing power and best-in-class fuel economy.
Esquire’s editors looked through all truck models available for sale in the U.S. market, examining stats while rating the vehicles with an eye for the most important elements of a great pickup truck, including value, functionality, efficiency, versatility and style. The Ram 1500 EcoDiesel stood out from the pack with its respectable towing power and impressive 28 highway mpg rating — no other full-sized half-ton pickup truck has ever scored as well in the highway cycle test.
“This is where the truck tide turns: a full-sized American pickup with a just-big-enough diesel V-6 — the only one of its kind,” Esquire magazine noted. “You get the fuel economy of a small engine, the pulling power of a larger one and the grumble of a working-class diesel.”
“In such a competitive market, we are thrilled to earn a ‘Truck of the Year’ title from Esquire,” said Bob Hegbloom, president and CEO of the Ram Truck Brand. “The Ram 1500 delivers with a winning combination of best-in-class fuel economy and capability and going forward, Ram will continue to set the pace with the best trucks in their segments.”
